Changes to the Code Development Process

The board approved a standing motion from the Board Committee on the Long-Term Code Development Process to revise the code development cycle to incorporate two committee action hearings for each code group. This change expands the current process from two independent one-year cycles to a single continuous three-year cycle.

This change will not take effect until the code development cycle beginning in 2024 for the development of the 2027 International Codes.
